PORT WASHINGTON -- In April, Port Washington Village Council accepted the third reading of an ordinance pertaining to animals in the village.

Resident Cassandra Hupp was presented a letter from council thanking her for the manner of her request to keep a lamb in the village for as a 4-H project.

Mayor Tom Gardner remarked that she had presented her knowledge of raising sheep in a way that was very admirable. Mayor Gardner wished her well and hoped she may receive a blue ribbon at the county fair for her project. Gardner also told Hupp's mother she should be very proud of her daughter.

Each request for keeping an animal in the village as a project must be brought before the council for approval.

Port Washington Historical Society member Loretta Couts came before council expressing concerns of a water problem at the town hall entrance, a parking problem in the village and reported that something needs to be done with the second floor at the town hall. Councilman Terry Lawver will present plans to raise the brick at the entrance to the hall to take care of the water problem. Council will be helping clean the first floor of the hall on May 27 at 6 p.m.

Port Washington Police Chief Shawn Nelson said clean up in the village was going well.

Council heard the second reading of the flood plan.

Mayor Gardner announced the Memorial Day plans for the village. There will be a ceremony at the cemetery, a military fly-over, a parade and a chicken barbecue at the firehouse.
